Hasn’t even started yet and I have found a ton of value in this conference. I have to get some good sleep because I have a full schedule until I get back home.
On the plane I re-read the first three chapters of SQL Server 2008 Internals and troubleshooting. Tomorrow starts the actual conference with:
Query Performance Tuning, Start to Finish
Probably going to BWW for an after hours networking event.
Thursday starts the sessions and these are the ones I have chosen.
The Direty Dozen: powershell scripts for the busy DBA
Troubleshooting Performance Problems by reading the Waits
Understanding storage systems and SQl Server
T-SQL Code Sins: The worst things we do to code and why
Writing faster queries
DBA Disaster Recovery Techniques to keep handy
Dinner plans are open, maybe back to bahama breeze because the chicken kabobs were awesome.
Friday has more sessions:
The BI DBA
SQL Server Troubleshooting via DMV’s
Evaluate your daily checklist against 100+ instances of SQL Server while you get a cup of coffee
Deadlocking for mere mortals
Fundamentals of SQL Server Internals
